Many factors can affect children’s mental health and well-being. Children can feel anxious about different things at different ages. There may be links with home life, school life, bullying, social media, learning, or friendships. Many of these worries are a normal part of growing up. On some occasions, these may be rooted in more acute, anxiety based issues or disorders such as ADHD.
This may mean that they can struggle to manage their emotions and behaviours and consequently may show inappropriate responses to some situations.
This can be disconcerting at times for us, the adults in school. We may feel uncertain about how to respond, what we say and do, how we behave. We may feel challenged, anxious or out of control ourselves when a child behaves in an unexpected, random or harmful way.
It is important that we, the adults in our schools, recognise the possible signs of SEMH. It is crucial too, that we recognise the effects of this upon us and our ability to be as resilient as we need to be.
This training aims to:
Consider how to identify signs of stress, anxiety or mood changes in our children.
Learn more about how to respond and possible actions to take
Consider strategies that we can use to support in the classroom
Understand more about the impact upon school and home life, future life prospects and attitudes towards others.
Explore how to maintain our own levels of resilience
